View Full Version : Hello from the Netherlands

Hello everyone

My name is Ralph, I am 32 years old and I live in a small village in the east of the Netherlands.
I am also a father of 3 daughters and I have 3 cats.

I am in a way new to Buddhism, I first started studying Buddhism at 18.. well I started reading books about it and watched documentairies but dispite all the theory I never put it into practice until recently.
And I can say it already changed me positively. for example.. lately I have this urge to help other people and this feeling is totaly new to me, also it seems I can take a lot of pressure while normaly I would get angry very easily.

I realise and accept the fact that I am still standing with both feet in samsara, but slowly I am making progress.
I also realised that in order to become a buddhist it would be a good to interact with other buddhists and that is why I came here.
This looks like a great place to start

Greetings Ralph:hands:
